A large number of people today do not think about obtaining a law firm till they are in desperate need. The lawful problem could be personal, like family law, for a divorce or if you are hunting for a bankrupcy or trust attorney. It may be a felony case you need to be defended on. Organizations want legal representatives as well, no matter whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or possibly unjustified business tactics. Tax lawyers are also beneficial anytime dealing with government troubles. Just like doctors, lawyers have specialties. A huge, full service law firm has a number of legal professionals with distinct areas of experience, so hinging on your personal legal issue, you can immediately hold on to the top legal professional to fulfill your current need without having to start your search each time you need legal help.It is ideal to obtain a law firm you can believe. You need one with a very good record, who ishonest, effective, and wins cases. You need to have confidence that they will defend you properly and invoice you fairly for their services. From time to time a word of mouth from a pal or business affiliate can be practical, however you should keep your options open and review all the firms accessible, simply because when you need to have legal help, you need it instantly and you really want the very best you can afford to pay for.

In Nys If A Unwed Mother Wants To Give Her Baby Up For Adoption Does The Biological Father Have A Say
From New York State Statues:
Who Must Consent to an Adoption
Citation: Dom. Rel. Law 111; 113
* Both parents, if child is born or conceived in wedlock
* For a child born out of wedlock, the mother and the father, if he has shown an interest in the child
* Any person or agency having custody
* An agency if the agency has custody and guardianship of the child, if both parents are deceased, or one parent is deceased and the other parent is not entitled to notice
When Parental Consent is not Needed
Citation: Dom. Rel. Law 111
* Has failed to visit or contact the child for 6 months
* Has surrendered the child to an agency for adoption
* Shows intent to forego rights
* Whose child has a court appointed guardian
* Is unable to care for the child due to mental illness
* Has executed an instrument, which shall be irrevocable, denying paternity of the child
So basically if the father is in contact with the birth mother and does not have a mental illness - she CANNOT give the child up for adoption WITHOUT HIS CONSENT.
Question About Spousal Support?
If You Go Through An Uncontested Divorce Can You And Your Soon To Be Ex Wife Choose Not To Pay Sposal Support Because She Wants To Put It When We Fill The Divorce That Neither On Of Us Pays Spousal Support
spousal support can be waived by either party, however, it must be waived by the one receiving it ... the party that makes the most money usually has to pay the support ... if the party receiving the support changes their mind at the last minute, and they can when the articles of divorce are read in court, the divorce may become contested unless the other party agrees to the last minute change ... i had a similar divorce situation and she changed something at the last minute and i agreed cause i just wanted out
she may be in line for a high paying job, and you may be signing away support you are entitled to receive.
At What Age Does Spousal Support Terminate In California?
Thought I Saw Age 65 In A Family Law Practice Guide.
i think it is a couple of years or so after the divorce
What Is Best For My Child/ Fathers Rights?
I Am Due In Four Weeks And The Father And I Have Been Off And On. I Love Him But He Doesn'T Treat Me Right And Refuses To Talk About His Son Or Anything Regarding The Matter. He Had Even Said That He Views His Son As A Burden To His Life. I Wish That He Would Have Some Sort Of Fatherly Pride And Want To Be There For His Son. No Matter How Hard I Try He Pulls Away. He Calls Me Names For Even Bringing Up.Child Support. I'M Only 19 Working A Full Time Job And Will Be Going To School. I Really Can'T Do It All Without Some Sort Of Assistance. I Just Have No Idea What To Do. The Thing Is He Lives In A State Over And Has No Job. Would It Just Be Better To Completely Leave Him Off Everything And Not File For Support. I'M Just Afraid If I Ask He Will Get Vengeful And End Up Being More Of A Dick. I Just Think Its Best If My Child Had His Father In His Life Or Out And Not Disappointing Him The Whole Time .
I'm sorry about your situation. Some men are good at making children, but stink at caring for them. You need to make the best of this and care for your child. He has a legal responsibility to provide support for any children he fathers.
Because of this situation, you have to do the right thing for the child. If you let the father slide on child support, he won't do his part. Fill out all the forms and let the system figure out how to make him pay.
As the child's only parent, you are the sole custody parent. If the man wants to grow up. You might consider allowing him to see the child. But I would make that something he had to earn. He should be 100% behind you. Your carrying his child. I don't care if he hates you. The fact that his child is inside you should make him act like an adult. A real man wants his child cared for and happy, even if he can't get along with the mom.
Do you think he would be different if you weren't expecting ? If you say yes, than you know who your dealing with, a little boy looking for a good time, not a man.
I suggest you look for real advice. A woman's group or an agency that can make sure you don't just get ignored by him. Just be careful, if he deserves custody, he has to earn it. By paying support and working with you. The fact that he is the father means nothing. You know you will love your child. Find a man that loves you and the child. The other one needs to pay up and grow up.
What Type Of Law Does A Medical Marijuana Lawyer Study?
I'M Curious To Know What Type Of Law Degree Lawyers Who Practice In Medical Marijuana Cases Usually Study For.
A law degree.
Graduates of Law School receive a Doctor of Jurisprudence (abbreviated J.D.). To practice law the graduate passes the Bar for the State and begins a study or specialized area of practice.
Every JD studies the same thing; choices for assignments allow the student get a feel for different area of the law. Then go on to do bankruptcy, divorce, criminal, etc. They also chose to prosecute or defend.
What Does A Cpa Lawyer Do?
I'M Thinking Of Becoming A Lawyer In The Future, And A Lot Of People Advised Me To Become A Cpa Lawyer. I Have No Idea What They Do, Though! Also, What Are The Other Types Of Lawyers? I'Ve Only Heard Of Criminal Lawyers & Corporate Lawyers.
Certified Public Accountant - you work with tax laws - which are constantly changing. LOTS and LOTS of paperwork. You'll need to love working with details and lots of paperwork. You'll be helping the rich find ways to bend the tax laws and NOT pay taxes.
But, overall, becoming a CPA is a good idea - there are LOTS of future job opportunities there. But forget about the part about becoming a Lawyer. Just stick with the CPA part.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons: We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead - they aren't hiring legal staff. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software/law books in order to get legal work done without the expense of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc) For example: Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law. Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!<<< Even after paying the expensive tuition, you still need to pay for books, room and board, and miscellaneous fees.
The legal profession leaves little room for outside interests. Commitment to the law profession tends to produce an unbalanced lifestyle.
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
The competition to get into law school is intense. Applicants to most law schools greatly exceed the number that can be admitted.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid. And the competition is fierce in TODAY's job market!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites: http://informeddecisionmaking.blogspot.c...
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about future job availability in the field of Law..................
**Do "informational interviews" with several attorneys from at least two or three different firms. (You can find how to do "informational interviews" from your local Public Library - ask the Librarian.) Interviewing attorneys is a time-efficient and extremely beneficial way of discovering if law is the right vocational field for you. Talk to a few Human Resource Managers who work at employers in the field of Law. Ask them what their opinion is on future job availability for the field of Law. Ask them if they have any current open positions. Ask them how many resumes they receive when they advertise ONE open position. (It is ususally approximately 300 resumes are received for each open position advertised.) If you personally know a practicing lawyer, set up a time with them to do an "informational interview" to ask them about their career. Talk to many attorneys. Better yet, spend an entire day with one of them.
**Talk to recent law graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities. <<<
If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
There are MANY issues of working in the vocational field of Law. My answer is an attempt to give you a realistic way of looking at this career, and I have told you things that most will not tell you about the profession - at first. Be careful, do your research, and have your eyes open wide.
(This is based on my current knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Please be careful and do your research.<<< You DID ask the question here on Y/A. I am just trying to help you.)
